Congrats to Forrest. Check your email for the redeemable gift code.
Over the last year or so I had slowly eliminated ads from the site. I was using some ad services that paid a minimal amount and dramatically slowed down my site. I couldn’t take it. They looked like crap usually too. Since then I’ve received a few offers for ads, but most looked awful or were not suitable. Recently though the fine folks at Woodzee (wooden sunglasses) wanted a spot and also wanted to offer my readers (you rockin’ folks) a free gift certificate. So I said what the hell. The glasses were kind of cool – I mean wooden sunglasses – rad. Also they plant a tree for every pair they sell. I can get down with that. So if you want to be entered into this two week contest for a $50 gift certificate to Woodzee, just email me at [email protected] with “FREE MONEYS” in the subject line.
